NHS Grampian has paid out more than £720,000 in compensation to staff in the last five years for injuries and accidents at work.
New figures from the health board today revealed almost £722,000 has been spent compensating members of staff involved in incidents.
But the overall figures fell in 2014/15 compared to 2013/14.
A total of £69,200 was given out in compensation payments to staff in 2014/15, almost £60,000 less than the previous year.
The highest figure throughout the last five years – £434,267 – was paid out for incidents relating to staff being struck by moving or falling objects or when they were trapped by something.
More than £190,000 was issued in compensation to staff involved in incidents relating to slips, trips and falls.
An NHS Grampian spokeswoman said: “The health and safety of our staff is very important to us.
“We encourage the reporting of all incidents, via DATIX, to ensure lessons can be learned and future problems prevented.
“We respect the right of anyone injured while at work to raise a claim.
“We look into each case very carefully, listen to concerns and, if appropriate, compensate a claimant.
“The compensation money is not paid from NHS Grampian funds, but comes from its insurance scheme – the Clinical Negligence and Other Risks Scheme (CNORIS) which is a risk transfer and financing scheme for NHS Scotland.”
